After the first shock of learning about the death of a loved one, it is vital that you know what steps to take. It can be tough, however, to make these decisions and start making arrangements because you’re dealing with grief and perhaps shock. If you are going through this right now, here are some important first steps that you need to take. When searching for Jewish Funeral Homes in Edison consider our experienced directors here at Mount Sinai Memorial Chapels, recommend you do the following:
The first thing you need is to contact the funeral home. It’s always best to select a locally owned, family operated funeral home versus a large corporate chain. At our funeral home, we’re personally available 24/7 every day of the year. We’ll take some basic information on the first call, get your permission to bring you loved one into our care as quickly as you direct, and make an appointment for you and your family to discuss what type of service is right for your family.
It’s always wise to see if your loved one left anything prearranged. This can save you a lot of time, but not everyone has prearranged their final service. If your loved one did not, you will want to start making decisions as to what kind of funeral or memorial services your loved one would have wanted. This is not always easy to know; if need be, reach out to trusted family members to see what they suggest.
After the service details are decided upon, the next thing you should do is contact relatives and friends. Choose those who were closest to the deceased and ask them to go ahead and contact others themselves. At our funeral home, we will provide you with an email link to your loved one’s obituary and service details, which makes it very easy for you to either email or, in today’s world, post on your social media. This will ensure that everyone that needs to know is informed of the death but that you do not have to personally do the job of calling them yourself.
These essential initial steps are what you need to do when a loved one passes. The most important step though is to find the funeral home or cremation provider in the area that is the best suited to your family’s needs.
